Hygienist Services

Having clean white teeth and fresh breath are just two reasons to visit us for a hygiene appointment. Regular visits can also avoid receding or bleeding gums, remove plaque and calculus.

Most people don’t realise that periodontal (gum) disease can even contribute to heart disease. So a regular hygiene appointment as short as 25 minutes each could help add years to your life!

Good oral hygiene is one of the most effective ways of preventing long term dental problems. Cleaning your teeth properly prevents tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath and stops more serious problems such as tooth loss and premature ageing from the resulting bone loss in the jaw.

Hygienist Appointment

Hygienists are trained to thoroughly clean your teeth and gums. Even the best electric toothbrush can’t reach every part of your mouth, and a hygienist can get to those hard-to-reach places to provide a professional deep clean. While you will leave with a fresher, cleaner smile, their job goes far beyond the superficial. A scale and polish will remove harmful plaque and deposits of tartar that, if left, can cause periodontal (gum) disease. By making a hygienist visit part of your dental care regime you can stay one step ahead and avoid becoming one of the 19 out of every 20 people who will suffer from gum disease during their life.

Why Consider Hygienist Services?

What can I expect from a hygienist appointment?

An appointment with your hygienist will involve an initial oral hygiene check up, followed by a ‘scaling’ procedure. This is where any build up of harmful plaque and tartar is carefully and gently removed from the surface of your teeth and around the gum line using scalers and curettes, which are specially designed tools to check scrape away soft deposits. Hand-held mirrors help your hygienist to spot those missed areas and pinpoint plaque build up. Following a good clean and analysis of overall gum health, they will give your teeth a shine and polish with a gentle, quiet air polisher to remove any superficial stains. In cases where there is decay, a hygienist may apply fluoride or an antibacterial gel.

What are the benefits of visiting a hygienist?

Good oral hygiene is vital in eliminating gum disease and decay, which can eventually lead to tooth loss. Regular visits to a dental hygienist will ensure that hidden and difficult-to-reach plaque and tartar is removed from your teeth removing rough surfaces which contribute to build up of bacterial numbers, and improving the health of your teeth and gums.

Hygienists can also help you maintain brighter, whiter teeth. Scaling and polishing, as well as AIR-FLOW therapy and cosmetic treatments can remove surface stains, leaving you with a fresher, brighter smile.

Your hygienist can also provide advice on diet and how to care for your teeth and gums properly at home.
